Abstract

Laboratory accumulation and excretion experiments of 4-nonylphenols (NP) and 4-tert-octylphenol (OP) were performed for killifish ( Oryzias latipes ). The bioconcentration factors (BCF, wet weight) in the whole fish were mean±SD of 167±23 ( n =4) for NP and 261±62 ( n =4) for OP. The biological half-lives in the whole fish were 9.9 h for NP and 7.7 h for OP. Parallel to the laboratory experiments, field survey on the chemicals contamination for water and ayu fish ( Plecoglossus altivelis ) from rivers flowing into Lake Biwa was performed. The contamination was not so high in agreement with the laboratory experimental data and the field BCF values (wet weight) in the ayu fish were 21±15 ( n =8) for NP and 297±194 ( n =3) for OP.
